Embarrassing Exposure Using StarTrek Like Bathroom/Toilet in Germany

I had the most embarrassing exposure when using a Star Trek like bathroom/toilet. It happened a few days ago on a train to Hamburg, Germany. This train is equipped with a spacious sci-fi looking restroom. Don’t be fooled, it’s not that smart. It does not detect if someone is inside bu I was too impressed by appearances to use it correctly. You can say that I am not very smart but my observation was that other people who do not know German language may also have the same problems. I am sharing my embarrassment with you here now so that you can avoid being the next joke of the day. By the way, the German word verriegeln means “lock.”
